Seven Seas announced on Wednesday that it has licensed The Idaten Deities Only Know Peace manga created by Amahara and coolkyousinnjya. The first English volume of the series will be released in April 2022.
The Idaten Deities manga is ongoing and currently has five volumes out in Japan. MAPPA’s latest series aired over the summer of this year and received an overall positive reception. The action-seinen series gave fans some epic moments throughout and ended up placing 13th out of 39 anime in our ‘2021 Summer Anime of the Season‘ poll. Luckily, you can catch up on season one in the meantime.
With incredible animations and a booming soundtrack, Idaten Deities is definitely a series many overlooked when it first released. With the English version of the manga on its way, hopefully, it will encourage some to watch the series. All episodes for the series are currently streaming on Crunchyroll.
You can watch a trailer for it down below:
With projects such as Chainsaw Man, Attack on Titan, Jujutsu Kaisen, and MAPPA’s first anime original movie, ‘Alice and Therese’s Illusion Factory’, on the way, no announcement for Idaten Deities season two has been released as of now.
Idaten Deities Synopsis
It’s been eight hundred years since the powerful Idaten deities sealed away the demons who plagued humanity. To the foul-mouthed Hayato, a young deity, the story is mostly a myth. For this new generation of idle deities, there’s just not much to do as they watch over humans in peace. But when the seal on the demons breaks, it’s up to Hayato and his oddball compatriots to come to humanity’s rescue! Can these misfit gods who know nothing of war rise to the challenge, or is a demon threat in a messy mortal world too much to handle?Seven Seas
